Mandie and the Hidden Treasure

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Dr. Plumbley looked where Joe was pointing. “I don’t remember that place being there. It might have been, but I don’t remember it.” “Then maybe it is sitting on the rock pile that Ruby put on the map,” Mandie said. “It could be,” the doctor agreed. “If you think it is, then we should measure 572 feet and find a persimmon tree,” Mandie reasoned. “Only we looked for a persimmon tree and could not find a single one,” Sallie said. “Let’s measure it again and see if we can find one. At the end of 572 feet the young people looked around. “This isn’t the same place we came to when we measured the distance this afternoon!” Mandie exclaimed.

Book: Mandie and the Hidden Treasure (Mandie, Book 9) by Lois Gladys Leppard, Bethany House Publishers, 1987

Genre: History, adventure
Target Audience: 13 and under
Subjects: Death (a little bit)
Summary: Mandie is out on another adventure. This time it’s finding a hidden treasure with a map that’s about fifty years old! Mandie, Sallie, and Joe set out to find the treasure but meet a lot of problems. First, the places on the map just don’t exist anymore. A rock pile, a persimmon tree, a rhododendron bush are nowhere in sight. And then there’s the mad man close by with his rifle on the ready. Will the three close friends find the treasure in time?
Notes: This book as well as others in the Mandie Book series is more about adventure, than God. There might be only a few remarks, if at all, about Him. This book will merely entertain and won’t help in spiritual growth. This is the 9th book in the Mandie Book series.
Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 2/5
Reviewer: Sofia Marie
